Hi Chaps

I cut a branch of my apple tree that was getting in the way and decided to make a spoon.
That was a couple of days a go and now it is dry I decided to finish it, so after some knife work and scraping I decided to tackle in inside on the bowl, I started with a goose neck scraper but it was blunt and difficult to use, I sharpened it turned a burr but it was still difficult to use.
I decided what I needed was a smaller egg shaped scraper, I had some steel from a cheap hard point saw so a made one, I ground out the profile filled it smooth and polished it with diamond stones
It has 4 different radiuses so it will fit most curves.
It works very well and made short work of smoothing the bowl.
